How big?

I used to mess with Testor's model cement for small webs on the corners of boxes and such. You could build a structured web this way but not sure how big it could be.

Don't breathe the stuff too much. ;)

Ghostride productions, GRP offers some sweet cobwebs in a spray can they're like $14.  but are hollywood set material.  Other than that they offer a hot glue gun you hook up to an air compressor...as the glue comes out you spray it all over.  Used these products on haunted houses and film short sets they work great.
very realistic.

btw I screwed up...the link is not my site but Ghostride.

You can take a regular hot melt glue gun, and run a air hose to it, pull the trigger, squrit some air and volia. Realsitic cobwebs.

melted sugar? That might be too hard to work with though.

seems like I'd seem a tutorial somewhere for preserving real spider webs..
spray glue? I'll look.. You might could find some real webs that are sturdy enough and attach them with the cement. They last a long time too..other than that, a pet spider or two might help..

Forgot to add, if you haven't gotten a box yet, Container Store sells those same ones in various sizes..

Chris,

Go to the halloween stores or wal-mart etc (as they have massive clearance) and get the webbing that is in the large bag. (Like to decorate outside etc.) Pull off just a little bit and stretch that.

Cheap and will probably do what you want.

Shrink wrap ( the stuff used to wrap around pallets and looks like seran wrap) any is you stretch shink wrap till it breaks it looks like a web shout out of spidermans wrist. I work in a plant where the seats for the Dodge Durango are made. The fork lifts constantly move pallets and sometimes the wrap gets stuck on another pallet and gets stretched to the poing where it snaps. It looks really cool.

if it's for a small box and your wanting the 'random' type of web just try squirting a tiny bit out and going back and forth between the corners that you'd like to be covered and let the pesky strings that ususally get on your nerves when doing other projects do their job.
